I just changed out the heating element, due to no heat,but the dryer still doesn't heat up. What should be my next step since I don't have a multi-meter? Do I need to get a new thermostat or something else?
ANSWER Hello Walter. You really need to get a multi-meter. Not, only can they be used here, but on other things around the house as well. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
